9 Offices, 168 Volunteers, 1 Mission: Bringing Change to Our Communities

At West Monroe, we believe that we have a social responsibility to give back to our community. Our “National Day of Change” is a volunteer initiative that gives us a deeper sense of what it means to do good. We are a community comprised of determined and innovative people, but it is our shared value of social responsibility that unites West Monroe across all offices.

On June 24th, we held our Second Annual National Day of Change, where West Monroe team members across the country came together to volunteer in their local communities. Collectively, we had 168 West Monroe volunteers supporting local organizations.

Check out the information below to see our day of change in each of our locations!

  • Impact: West Monroe spent the day at Foster Park Elementary School in the Gresham neighborhood.  The group broke into small project teams that painted new welcome signs, large world and US maps on the playground, and several intricate murals on the interior of the school. We also had the great pleasure of working side-by-side with several Foster Park students who are active in the local Girl Scout troop.
